You probably shouldn't even be thinking about cookies after going so heavy on the stuffing and pie at Thanksgiving (oh, and all those leftovers that didn't last long), but a new deal from Whole Foods might leave you double-fisting freshly baked chocolate chip cookies, perhaps against your better judgement. After all, they'll only cost you a quarter.
In celebration of National Cookie Day (December 4th), the same organic grocery chain that came under fire for an overcharging customers in NYC and briefly offering something called "asparagus water" for $6 is offering chocolate chip cookies for 25 cents each from December 2nd through December 8th, with a maximum of three cookies per customer. But face it, that probably won't stop you, because hangry shopping is real.
The deal comes after the success of similar "customer appreciation" promotions like 25-cent coffee and 25-cent oatmeal this fall, the former of which led Whole Foods to sell 1.2 million cups of coffee at the discounted price. However, what Whole Foods didn't say is how many other items customers went on to buy after being lured into the store by the deals, which is obviously the point here. But just like with the previous deals, it's a risk we're willing to take for chocolate chip cookies.
